Pregnancy and Parenting Resources

The University encourages and supports the academic and professional success of pregnant and parenting students and employees. Fordham's non-discrimination policy specifically prohibits discrimination against those of marital or parental status, which includes on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, or recovery there from.

Complaints of Discrimination based upon Pregnancy or parenting status: Students should first address concerns with their individual professors. If unsatisfied with the faculty member’s response, then please contact the dean of your school with your concern. Employees should contact the Department of Human Resources with any pregnancy or parenting related concerns.

Once you have attempted to resolve your concern with your dean’s office or Human Resources, you may also file a complaint with the Title IX Coordinator for the University:

A discrimination compliant may also be filed with the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.
